Muddle Puddle Market blossomed out of a couple of discoveries Adam and I made during our first year with our little Madelyn. Firstly, babies go though a lot of things – clothes, toys, safety products, equipment – in a very short space of time!
This means there is a constant supply of pre-loved baby goods in fantastic condition floating around at any given time. What we needed was a regular, accessible and affordable space in which people could buy and sell these products within the Canberra community. This would save local families endless amounts of time and money in the continual updating of supplies for their babies and children.
Secondly, we stumbled across the immense talents of local small and start-up businesses. From gorgeous headbands and stunning fabrics to learning toys and beloved books, Canberra mums and dads are sewing, sourcing and creating an exquisite array of unique and wonderful products.
Uniting these two ideas at our first Muddle Puddle Market on November 16 last year proved a huge success. The mixture of stalls, the charisma of stall holders and the goodwill of customers created a special atmosphere and a wonderful launch to what is now set to become a regular market.
We look forward to an exciting future with Canberra families!
